Received several thank you emails from my online students today when our class finished. They never understand, I don’t think, how much I have to thank them for ❤
Create a thank you note (written, visual, musical, etc.) to someone else, someone who doesn’t realize how much gratitude your feel for them.

My son came home this weekend, to celebrate Father’s Day with me 🙂 He says since I’ve been both mother and father, I get to celebrate both days. My mama always joked, If you can stand them til they’re twenty-two, you’ll get them back as friends. 🙂 I am so grateful for those kids, my three closest friends ❤

“I look in the mirror through the eyes of the child that was me.”― Judy Collins
Make art about childhood shame, about seeing that hurt child in your adult eyes, about healing shame.
